‘Daniel Craig can learn dancing from me’
Abhishek Bachchan has no desire to be James Bond but would not mind teaching actor Daniel Craig few Bollywood dance steps. ‘Every actor has his own identity. I don’t aspire to be Bond. My quest is to do something new, something different,’ the Bachchan Junior said here when asked if he would try to emulate Craig as they both endorse the same global watch major. Abhishek, however, said he would love to be part of a project featuring the troika of himself, Daniel and George Clooney (another brand ambassador of the same watch) which would be a typical Bollywood flick.
‘This will be more kind of an Indian film. Dance, colourful costumes, They (producers) have to do their research. And (if) they have any nice character (for me) in mind (I am ready),’ he said.
Abhishek joked that he would volunteer to teach the other two how to dance in a Bollywood film. Turning serious, he said, ‘I do films that I like. I have done comedy, romance, everything and I always like to do it differently from the previous ones.’ Starting with Refugee in 2000, Abhishek had turned up in Dhoom (2004) the first film in the Dhoom series. In 'Yuva' (2004), 'Bunty Aur Babli' (2005), Sarkar (2005) besides others. Abhishek, who acted in Rituparno Ghosh’s Antarmahal, said he had been a friend of ‘Me, my wife (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), my parents. My family misses him terribly. ‘His Raincoat was a wonderful film. Also Chokher Bali. It is a huge loss for Indian cinema.
I would love to watch Satyaneswi (his last film),’ the Guru actor said on Rituparno, who died of cardiac arrest at the age of 49 on 31 May this year. Abhishek is currently shooting for director-choreographer Farah Khan’s Happy New Year with Shah Rukh Khan. The two would share screen space again after Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna in 2006.
